Snapchat begins sale of video-recording 'Spectacles'

Glasses cost $130 and come in three colors

Snap Inc., the company behind the popular smart phone app Snapchat, has released a new multifunctioning product- goggles.

Snapchat’s new goggles, called Spectacles, are sunglasses with a built-in wireless video camera.

The built-in camera has a 115-degree field of view, which is wider than the average cellphone camera.

The sunglasses can record up to 30 seconds of video at a time, and the frame also has built-in lights inside and outside the frame to let others know that you’re recording.

Footage taken from the glasses can be uploaded directly to the user’s Snapchat account, or to a folder.

The glasses are $130 and come in three colors: black, blue and coral.
